KORBLY NARROWLY BEATEN Succumbs to W. W. Hastings in Fair Grounds Feature Race. Maramon Gives Owner Livingston His First Victory of the Meeting Track Gossip. NEW ORLEANS, La., February 11. Summerlike weather was the order here and, coupled with the fust ir-fk and a fairly well -arranged racing program, it served to bring out another banner attendance; likewise produced an excellent brand of racing. Finishes were close in the extreme, with contention keen from the outset. The feature race, in which some of the best sprinters here started, was captured by Mike Rooneys W. VT. Hastings. The horse ran an ex- Rent race and just managed to outstay Korbly and Violet Ronnie. Korbly. as usual, showed a high order of speed, but V. W. Hastings always kept him close company anil the weight was a telling factor near the end, for the eight pounds advantage enjoyed by W. W. Hastings enabled him to take the purse. The mulritii two-year-old fillies starting in the opening race furnished a rousing finish, with Lady Monntjoy, carrying H. P. Hondlcys colors, just uiMiiiiglng to stick 1t out to beat Rib, with E. R. Itriidleys Blue Jeans In third place and going fastest of all and u probable winner in a few strides more. I marked the first victory for the master of .Beaumont Farm. E. R. Bradley, I win scored a nose .victory in the s coin! race over "Court T Gallant witlfIovfcrliia a slxl t margin farther back and heading Bagpipe f . r the shorter end of the purse. Jeffersoii Livingstons Maramon earned liiui his1 first victory of this winter, when he won by a nose under Robinsons masterly riding from Notate, with Espano only u head in back and probably best. Jiffys triumph by a neck over Kewpie ONeil was the result of Murphy taking Kewpie ONeil at a too fast pace for the first three-quarters and ,.t,.aiij. having him exhausted in the last sixteenth. m i.one scored a nose victory over Paula V. in I lie sixtli race, and her success was mostly due to liie ground she saved on the stretch turn, while Paula V. was ridden wide. Foxy Griff took the closing race, in which he was .best. Ills owner at one time seemed disinclined to have rider Snehlmau. but having only the alternative of scratching the horse or letting the boy ride, after a ruling by the judges be elected to start. JOCKEY BUXTON SET DOWN. There was considerable comment anent the ruling of the judges handed down after the last nice, denying the privilege to jockey Huxton of further iccenting mounts at the Fair Grounds. Wiseacres attribute the edict to Buxtons failure to take good ate of himself. The judges also banned jockey F. Smith by withdrawing Ids riding license. The supposition Is that his riding has been unsatisfactory. Jockey Ensor has departed for Hot Springs, where lie will rest until the opening of the Oaklawn meeting. J. 0, Winfrey, who departed yesterday for Palm Reach, Florida, goes there to confer with Messrs. Ehvell and Thorne, owners of the Reach Stable, to take over the horses Sunny Slope, Flags and others that have been trained by R. F. Carman. Jockey Haynes is confined to his home by illness. Stake? blanks for the Havre de Grace spring meeting were distributed to owners this morning. The vents are not scheduled to close until ten days prior to their decision. eorge Peterson is among the latest to suffer an attack of influenza. Members of the Thoroughbred Horse Association, wao met last night, passed a resolution looking toward the abolishment of the contemplated license t.ix for trainers and jockeys by the Oaklawn Jockcv lull at Hot Springs. The horsemen also desire that but one license fee be necessary in future at the Jefferson and Fair , rounds tracks.
